Rosie O’Donnell talks about her 25-year-long friendship with Tom Cruise: “He Never Misses My Birthday”


Rosie O’Donnell has spoken up about her friendship with Tom Cruise, which spans 25 years.

O’Donnell, 59, discussed why she’ll “always love” the Mission: Impossible star, 58, even if she doesn’t “understand” his Scientology views during her interview on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show this week.

She stated, “He is the only person who never misses my birthday.

“In knowing him for 25 years now, he has never missed my birthday or an event in my life… Now I don’t know him enough to go, ‘Hey, Tommy, it’s Ro, the Scientology thing can we chat?’

“Like, that’s not my relationship with Tom Cruise. I don’t have his home phone number.”

“I know people think in Hollywood and celebrity, everybody knows each other, but I know him in the way that I did in that time 25 years ago,” O’Donnell continued. “But every year, I think what a classy guy he is that he never has forgotten my birthday. A lot of people say to me, it’s just his secretary, but I don’t believe that. I think he knows in early March, ‘Oh, it’s Rosie’s birthday coming up.’ And he sends me something every single year for 25 years.”

O’Donnell insists that “I love Tom Cruise and I will always love Tom Cruise.”

‘I do not understand the Scientology religion. I think it’s a cult and it’s scary. And I think Leah Remini is a hero for doing what she did [in exposing the allegations against the controversial organisation],’ O’Donnell said elsewhere in the interview.

O’Donnell posted a snapshot of a Christmas gift she received from Cruise on Instagram in December. The note on the gold-decorated present stated, “To: Rosie O’Donnell. Warmest wishes to you this Holiday Season —Tom Cruise.” She captioned the photo, “Christmas is here when tommy’s gift shows up #holidayseason.”

Cruise is currently filming “Mission: Impossible 7,” which was forced to suspend production earlier this month when at least one crew member tested positive for coronavirus.

“We have temporarily stopped production of ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ until June 14 due to positive results coronavirus test results during routine testing. We follow all safety protocols and will continue to monitor the situation, “ a Paramount spokesman stated at the time.
